I’ve never been one to make too much of a fuss over my birthday, but turning 30 seemed like a milestone worth celebrating. Thank you to my wonderful friends who joined Ted and me for brunch in Old Town at Trademark Drink and Eat. I figured it was a good excuse to dress up a bit, and took full advantage of the opportunity to wear this furry jacket that certainly made me the center of attention. My sweet friends showered me with peonies, macaroons, baubles, and more of my favorite things. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and I am truly grateful that I have such amazing people in my life. Thank you all for celebrating with me, and thank you for reading! Jacket / Sunglasses / Ring
It’s no secret that pink is my favorite color, so it is no surprise that when we were lucky enough to host my family for brunch I rolled out the pink carpet…okay, so really more like the pink napkin rings and roses. Hosting brunch is a fun way to entertain friends and family without leaving you with a sink full of dishes the next morning! I chose fairly neutral basics for our dining room so that it is easy to change the look of the tablescape with different china, linens, and fresh flowers. For brunch I chose to mix a few pieces of my fine china, Femme Fatale by Monqiue Lhuillier, with basic white everyday pieces to keep the pops of pink from becoming overwhelmingly feminine. Ted even treated us to some of his delicious homemade biscuits!
